What makes ILIFE V8s one of the best budget smart robot vacuum cleaners

With the price of 250 dollars, ILIFE is killing its competitors with its robots that not just do their job on carpets and hardwood floors picking up pet hair which makes them perfect for pet owners. While other most expensive robot vacuum cleaners work 60-90 minutes at most, the $250 ILIFE V8S runs the whole 120 minutes having a good suction power. The oldest brothers from ILIFE clean approximately the same time but they come with a less powerful motor. Sounds impressive?

          Your article states, «The coolest part about iLIFE V8s (A8 also has it) it's the feature that makes it get back to its docking base to recharge when the battery is running low and then get back to finish when the robot stopped. The same feature we've seen in Roomba 980.» but under Cons you list «no recharge and resume function.»
